PLEDGE TO HELP END GLOBAL BOOK HUNGER

because EVERY CHILD HAS THE RIGHT TO READ.

AS A READER...

I will reach out to my favorite children's authors and illustrators to invite them to partner in the effort to end book hunger.

AS AN AUTHOR...

I will make my stories available in disadvantaged languages. I will enlist my agent, publisher, and illustrators as partners in this effort.

AS AN ILLUSTRATOR... 

I will create artwork that can travel globally by avoiding specifically Western styles of clothing, architecture, possessions, etc.

AS AN EDITOR... 

I will identify and develop globally appealing titles and commission culturally sensitive illustrations.

AS A PUBLISHER...

I will make globally appropriate titles available for charitable translation and distribution in print and digitally.

AS AN AGENT...

I will educate my clients about global book hunger and empower them to donate translation rights to book charities.
